conditions it should be given.  I would love some advice on that.

Standard mediterranean conditions: summer dry, good light in winter, good
drainage, don't freeze them (they are hardy to light frost).  These are
small plants and probably best grown in a pot.  Their reported range is
pretty large, from the Cape itself up into desert areas.  So you might want
to ask where exactly your seeds are from.

Do you have the red or white version?  I've found that the white version is
easier to grow in my conditions.  I don't know why the red one is difficult
for me.  Still experimenting to figure it out. It might want a little bit of
moisture in summer.

Good luck!
